Announcement Literary Giveaway Blog Hop (Feb. 18-22)

Literary Giveaway Blog Hop

If your looking for the actual giveaways, please go to THIS blog post.


The Literary Giveaway Blog Hop is an event taking place from Saturday February 18th until (and including) Wednesday February 22nd. If you’re a book blogger and you’ve been wanting to give away a book to your readers, maybe to show your appreciation or because you have a special celebration, this is your chance to join up with others.

Isn’t giving better than receiving? Most giveaway blog hops seem to be directed towards young adult and romance audiences. Those hops are not so ideal if you want to give away more literary books (but if you’re interested, I Am A Reader Not A Writer runs frequent blog hops).

The third Literary Giveaway Blog Hop in October was a great success. So, it’s time for a fourth one and I hope you’ll join in. More details:

This event is an opportunity to give away prizes and get more traffic to your blog. You will run your own giveaway, but it will be linked up to all other participants via a links list (which I will give you just before the event). That way, not just your readers, but also the readers from the other participating blogs will stop by your blog.

You can offer one or more books, a gift voucher (for instance, to amazon or bookdepository), or anything else related to books and reading. There is no minimum or maximum value that your prize should have.

The only restriction is that if you’re giving away a book, that it should have some literary merit. It does not have to be the most difficult classic ever, but please no romance, urban fiction or YA. Thrillers, poetry and non-fiction are fine, as are contemporary fiction, literary fiction and any other genres not in the categories above.

Further information on the prizes: a book can be new or “gently read”. Your giveaway can be just for your country, for your continent, or word-wide. Offering a book via is a good way to make your giveaway world-wide (although not all countries are available) as it offers free postage.

Last day for signing up is February 15th. Only sign up if you intend to have a giveaway post up on your blog on February 18th. Literary Giveaway Blog Hop

Copy the image to put the button on your blog (e.g., in your sidebar and/or in a blog post), so you can advertise the Blog Hop and attract more participants to make this a big event and/or tell your readers about the event coming up.

  1. I’m in, as usual 🙂 It’s funny as just last night I was wondering if you’d do another one soon.

  2. Rikki says:

    Can I sign up in a preliminary way. I need to go into hospital for surgery in Feb. and should be out by then, but am not 100% sure, of course.

  3. booketta says:

    I would have loved to join up but the timing is bad for me as I’m committed to an author review at that time. I shall certainly look out for more of these events in the future.

    • Leeswammes says:

      That’s a pity Booketta. Just so you know: it’s not much work. You need to prepare a blogpost that goes up on February 18th, and then on February 23 (or a few days after), you need to draw a winner. But that’s all there is to it. 🙂

  4. Yay, that sounds great! I already have my book picked out, it’s a new copy of one of my 2011 faves.

  5. breieninpeking says:

    Leuk, ik doe weer mee!

  6. Suzanne says:

    I’m in again too! Thanks again for hosting.

  7. Roof Beam Reader says:

    Of course, I’m in!

  8. Stephanie says:

    Can’t wait to participate!

  9. lizzysiddal says:

    February is a really busy month for me, but I should be able to manage this.

  10. Thank you for the email! I am totally in! =)

  12. breieninpeking says:

    Kun je mijn status nog veranderen in “Dutch readers”? want ik wil best verder dan Europa versturen, ik vind dat Mevrouw Kinderboek het aardig verwoord heeft 🙂

  13. breieninpeking says:

    Ja, dankjewel.

  14. carolinareti says:

    What a fun way of giving back and introducing readers to great literature! I would love to participate! Filled in the form already 🙂

  15. Thanks for hosting once again Judith. I’m signing up (can you change my entry to International though? I checked the wrong box –sorry. My post is up!
